About the book

Richard Williamson’s weekly walking column has long been one of the most popular features in the Chichester Observer, Worthing Observer and West Sussex Gazette. Now, following the format that has proved such a hit over the years, for the first time he has compiled his favourite walks – one for every week of the year – with hand-drawn route maps. His knowledge and love of the timeless South Downs landscape and its varied flora, fauna and stories – from bat-birds and the Devil’s Jumps to beloved pubs and famous poets – combine with practical notes on routes that can be covered easily in an afternoon. Richard Williamson was for 30 years the manager of Kingley Vale National Nature Reserve and has an unparalleled knowledge of South Downs wildlife and lore.


'If you fancy a walk… all you need is this great pocket guide… there really is fun for all the family.'

'His friendly, folksy style encourages the walker to revel in the journey and sights to be seen rather than regard it as a set task to be completed before nightfall. On another level, the book also serves as an egaging guide to the rich flora and fauna of this blessed plot '
